Soundbites: Songs You Forgot About

Ten rap songs you forgot about (or didn't realize existed) in 2006. Some good, some weak, some, um, forgettable. You be the judge:

Lupe Fiasco - Pop, Pop
Lupe "I Used to Hate Hip-Hop" Fiasco threatens to send "pop, pop to your car" on this 2003 single recorded on Arista. And he has the nerve to condemn Nas' Hip-Hop Is Dead for bearing too much animosity?

Jay-Z ft. Sauce Money - Dead or Alive (Pac Diss?)
This old school joint surfaced shortly after Jay-Z disclosed that he had responded to 2Pac's disses on wax.

Talib Kweli ft. J Sands - In the Mood (prod. by Kanye West)
Kweli reunites with Kanye on this soulful leakage from Ear Drum.

Clipse - On My Sh*t
This outtake from Hell Hath No Fury is more potent than some of the album cuts.

Lupe Fiasco ft. Sway - We Love You
Lupe connects with UK's finest Sway Dasafo on this leftover from the F&L sessions. Jay-Z makes a cameo at the beginning.

UGK ft. Kool G Rap & Big Daddy Kane (prod. by Marley Marl) - Up Next
Despite the legendary line-up, "Up Next" failed to build up enough buzz for UGK's forthcoming album. The album is now set for late February.

Cassidy + Mos Def - Monster Music
An unlikely collabo between Mos and Cass, produced by none other than Swizzy.

Freddie Foxxx - The King is Down (Rakim Diss)
Bumpy Knuckles tries to revitalize his career by taking thin-veiled shots at Rakim. The diss stemmed from Rakim's statements in his interview with

MC Lyte - Hot Damn
To remind us that she's still the GFOAT Lyte dropped this mixtape gem in the first quarter of '06.

The Game ft. Yukmouth, Erick Sermon, Stat Quo & Fatal Hussein - Across the Coast
This out-of-nowhere posse cut dropped a couple months prior to the release of Doctor's Advocate.
